Husqvarna EE 5 Electric Motorcycle

Husqvarna Introduces First Electric Bike And New Gorgeous Models

Husqvarna Motorcycles, best known for their off-road dirt bikes, is finally getting into the electric bike game and it is starting with this little guy called EE 5. EE 5 takes is of a typical scrambler design with knobby tires, high-end chassis based on race proven technology, ergonomic bodywork with adjustable seat height, and WP suspension. It looks like what Husqvarna Motorcycles regular off-road two-wheelers, but only smaller and it is fully electric.

Not a lot is known about this electric bike. All we know are it will have an electric drivetrain with 5 kW (6.7 HP) peak performance that has six different ride modes, and a 907 Wh lithium-ion battery with quick charging support. It promised to be “easy-to-use” minicycle that will welcome up and coming riders into the world of off road motorcycle with confidence, Husqvarna Motorcycles said. And the best part, this ain’t no a fantasy ride. It is set to be available in summer 2019.

Along with the EE 5, Husqvarna Motorcycles also revealed two production model, SVARTPILEN 701 and a concept model, VITPILEN 701 AERO. I am particularly smitten by the latter and the looks pretty much say why. Just look at it. It so, awesome. In case you did not notice, the SVARTPILEN 701 is a street bike, while the VITPILEN 701 AERO is a cafe racer style race bike.

Here are the details of the duo:

SVARTPILEN 701 will be available sometime in Q1 2019 with an yet-to-be-disclosed price.

As for the VITPILEN 701 AERO, it is the VITPILEN 701… with aero, and a little lower. Little is know about this concept, but since it is based on the VITPILEN 701, we are going on a limb to say it shares the same 692.7 cc liquid-cooled, single-cylinder engine with 75 horsepower and 72 Nm of torque as the 2019 VITPILEN 701. If so, you can expect EFI, ride-bu-wire system, traction control system, along with up/down easy shift, WP suspension, and a two-part exhaust system comprising of a pre-silencer and a final silencer. But those are just our speculation.

These gorgeous and if I may say so, exciting two-wheelers, were announced by Husqvarna Motorcycles at the EICMA 2018.
